The Micro-BMS is a distributed BMS. A centralized ‘Master’ controll unit, and one slave unit per cell in the battery series array.
The head unit. This device communicates to all of the cells in your traction pack. Enabling you to monitor and balance, connect with CAN vehicle systems, and chargers.
The slave unit. This device connects directly to the battery cell. Slaves are interconnected on a single wire communication network that communicates SOC, charge / discharge rates, and temperature. These units are under the control of the master and allow the system to automatically ballance and maintain the battery pack as well as detect abnormalities or problems as soon as they arrise.
